My daughter since birth had food alergies to milk,eggs,carrots...Also, severe asthma which has improved. She is pettite and has not grown much since 5 and is very fearfull trying new foods and most foods are discusting to her... Since the begining of 2008 she has had problems swallowing water... We had been at several hospitals in NJ and had tests done with the camera down into her intestines/with a culture and could not find anything... So they opened a case with the social workers thinking we have problems at home.
Resently we had another count of food alergies(milk,eggs,carrots,beef, pork, peas,corn,green beans,soy,wheat, poatatos,apples,oranges,shelfish,etc...) She is also very alergic to animals... We had questioned her alergist and asked if it could be alergic esophagitis and she agreed... A shrink had seen her and does not think anything is causing this mentally. She is fearfull to even go outside now and is being homeschooled.

  • Have you researched NAET? There are over 21 NAET practitioners located in NJ, and I am sure there is one near you. Please research this - it is amazing how well it works....doesn't work for everyone, but I'd say 75% of my patients are noticing major improvements. Also research Bach Flower Remedies, as they would be very helpful for her fearfulness and the emotional aspect of her allergies. Bach Flower Remedies, especially Rescue Remedy, are very gentle and safe and very effective. Western allopathic medicine just doesn't have all the answers when it comes to food allergies and intolerances. Please look into the NAET. Best wishesDOM

  • Look into the NAET!! So sorry to hear you are going through this..... I am getting the results on my tests next Wednesday and if they come back negative for a blood dissorder, I will be looking into the Lyme information and NAET which looks interesting.

  • She may have a rare condition called hereditary angioedema of the larynx. Have her blood proteins checked (C1 and C4). A normal result doesn't rule out this, however.

  • I have found if you have to much or too little proteins, vitamins and calcium, you muscles will not function correctly. Also, with the deficiency her immune system is low. I feel this is why the combinations of food alergies/throat started and also not getting enough sunlight. She is doing well since we are only giving chicken, rice/noodles, chicken broth home made and prescribed vitamin supplement. . We are waiting for the blood work results for couple more food allergies, proteins,vitamin and calcium deficiencies. A specialist from Mt. Sinai Hospital in NY has heard of my daughters illness and he has a group of specialists that all work together and are willing to see her even though they do not accept my insurance. This will be in a couple weeks.My daughters new pediatric doctor terminated her after two weeks. Why??? this is my third doctor since December. I have Amerachoice health insurance and seems all the good doctors are not in my plan :(
